Elusive 1821 Quarter Eagle1821 $2 1/2 AU50--Rims Filed, Cleaned--Uncertified. Bass-3018, Breen-6126, R.4. For the first time since 1808, Quarter Eagles were once again produced in 1821. Robert Scot adapted his 1813 Half Eagle design and reduced the size of the hub. Previously, Quarter Eagles had a diameter of 20.6 mm., but the new 1821 pieces were reduced slightly to 19 mm., but the thickness of the planchets were increased slightly for no net gain or loss in weight. As with most known 1821 Quarter Eagles, some slight softness of details can be seen where the eagle's left (facing) wing joins the shield. Sharply struck elsewhere, though. The coin's overall appearance is not too bright from the light cleaning that was done at one time. The grade is primarily explained by the presence of some minimal disruption at the rim areas.
